Political Turbulence and Policy Research: The National Commission on Student Financial Assistance.
Griswold, Carolyn P.
Review of Higher Education, v22 n2 p143-64 Win 1999
A study explored constraints experienced by policy researchers working for the National Commission on Student Assistance, founded in 1980 to investigate federal student-aid policy. It analyzed how political changes limited the scope of research questions, influenced reporting of results, and reduced effects of research on policymaking. Findings suggest that concerns about research performed under these conditions are justified. (Author/MSE)
